New Untitled Airplane Painting

I’m two days into a new painting and its coming along quick.  It’s smaller than I’m used to working with, but the advantage here is speed.

Over the last few years, I have shot a ton of photos.  Usually I try to work several together into my large collage style paintings.  After browsing through my sets on Flickr, I kind of felt that many should be interesting little character sketches in their own right.  I’m once again going to try something I don’t normally do, and work on these little pieces concurrently with my larger pieces.

Here we go off into uncharted territory, so I think it’s fitting that I start with a plane that was out at the War Eagles Museum.
